This Colonial period naval cutlass is a classic example of American ingenuity whereby the brass hilt of a British Infantry Pattern 1756 hanger was re-worked for a better fit when worn thru a belt against the hip, and was also re-bladed using a colonial produced wide flat upturned blade. Note that the original heart shaped guard has been filed and smoothed on the reverse side for a better fit against the hip. This type of re-working of the hilt for a better more customized fit was common practice by Colonial seamen

Note the reverse side of what was a heart shaped guard has been ground and polished so that it would fit closer to the hip when being worn through a belt! This was a typical colonial American re-work performed by seamen who had to supply their own weapons and did not have the money to purchase new cutlasses.

Note the nipple at the end of the pommel has been cut indicating that the hilt was removed from the original blade which was possibly damaged and captured, and then re-bladed by a colonial blacksmith or cutler.

Colonial made 25.25" flat wide falchion blade, overall length of 29.5". Note the re-worked British hilt where the heart shaped guard was filed on one side to make for a better fit against the hip. Very typical of American seamen at the time, but strictly against British regulations.
